Assalāmuʿalaykum Wa Raḥmatullāḥi Wa Barakāṭuh

From the very onset, it should be made clear that the sale of health insurance is not permissible.

It should also be noted that with your qualifications, Alḥamdulillāh, there are many other jobs that you may pursue.

Consider this a test from Allāh ﷻ and, In Shā Allāh, having a positive mindset, you will not fail this test.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Seek a permissible livelihood for you and for your family. Indeed, this is also Jihād in the path of Allāh ﷻ. Know well, that the help of Allāh ﷻ lies in pure trade.” [Majmaʿ al-Zawā-id]

When one withholds themselves from impermissible earnings, Allāh ﷻ will definitely open up many other avenues of pure income for him.

May Allāh ﷻ ease your path, grant you pure sustenance and blessings in your sustenance.
